The Uruguayan international has had an impressive season in Racing's struggling side, notching eight goals to date.
The 26-year-old is in his fifth season at El Sardinero but has now caught the eye of a a number of Racing's Primera rivals.
Sevilla are believed to have already made contact with the player's agent, Paco Casal, regarding a switch at the end of the season.
The Andalusian outfit are battling to secure a top-four finish and could well prove an attractive proposition for Regueiro who is more accustomed to fighting relegation battles with Racing.
The South American could be seen as a possible replacement for Sevilla's very own goalscoring midfielder Julio Baptista who is sure to be the subject of widespread interest in the summer himself.
Regueiro is currently in the process of securing Spanish citizenship which would be another potential plus-point for Sevilla as he would not take up one of the three spots reserved for non-EU players.
